This document will explain how to:
The ActivationWizard.exe used to activate licenses CA Agile Requirements Designer, but it has been deprecated in Agile Designer 2.0. It is still available under the installation folder, but it will no longer be used to activate Agile Designer licenses.
The ActivationWizard has been replaced with offline and online license activation through CodeMeter Control Center for ARD versions 2.0-2.6. This license activation method requires certain license containers in order to request and apply Agile Designer licenses.
If you have never activated a license on your Agile Designer instance before, you will need to follow the instructions below before requesting and applying a license. If you have ARD 2.7+, this is automatically done for you with the License Activation Wizard based on what type of license you choose to activate.
A license container is like a template for the ARD license key. In most cases, you want to have the 'AgileDesigner' license container. All containers start with a '32767' number, and will have a gray icon next to them in CodeMeterCC. License containers are needed when applying a new offline or online license. For user machines with concurrent licenses, you will not need a license container.
With ARD 2.7+, this is deleted automatically in the License Activation Wizard when you use it to connect to a concurrent license server. If you are using ARD 2.0-2.6, you will have to delete it manually.
Activated licenses for ARD all start with a '128' number, and will have a blue icon next to them in CodeMeterCC. Screenshot example is below:
Release : 2.10+
Component : CA Agile Requirements Designer
There are multiple ways to access the CodeMeter Control Center (CC).
There are three ways to import the license containers to CodeMeter Control Center.
Now that your license container has been imported, you will be able to request and apply an Agile Designer license.
If you have any other license containers besides 'AgileDesigner' in CodeMeterCC, such as 'AgileDesignerUnb', 'AgileDesigner-Trial', or 'AgileDesigner-Offline', we suggest deleting them to avoid confusion.
